    Quiggins Sinkhole Flood Mitigation Project City of Radcliff, Hardin County, Kentucky DR-KY-1818-0012 February 12, 2015

    The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed construction of retention basins with sufficient capacity and other drainage elements to resolve frequent flooding in the City of Radcliff, Hardin County, Kentucky through a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) project under sub application number DR-KY-HMGP-1818-0012. FEMA provides HMGP funds to help protect people’s lives, health, safety, and improved property.

  • Seismic Design of Rigid Wall-Flexible Diaphragm Buildings

    Go to Resource

    Single-story buildings with rigid walls and flexible diaphragms (RWFD buildings) are common throughout the United States and are often used for warehouse buildings and “big box” retail stores. These buildings have stiff walls constructed of reinforced concrete or masonry, or braced frames of structural steel, and relatively flexible diaphragms of metal deck or wood structural panels. The seismic response of this type of structure is dominated by the deformation of the large and relatively flexible diaphragms. The standard design methods used in current seismic codes for all building types, however, assume primary response occurs in deformation of the vertically oriented lateral force resisting elements—moment frames, braced frames, or shear walls. A design approach for the RWFD building type that is more technically correct than current code design methods, and that can be shown to meet accepted code performance, has been sought for some time.

  • City of West Lake Hills Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project HMGP-DR-1999-0005 Travis County, Texas April 2015

    City of West Lake Hills Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project HMGP-DR-1999-0005 Travis County, Texas April 2015

    The City of West Lake Hills proposes to perform hazardous fuels reduction to reduce wildfire hazard along residential areas near wooded areas adjacent to the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve (WBWP) and to conduct fire mitigation education of residents in the area. The City of West Lake Hills submitted an application to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) for a grant under FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). TDEM is the direct applicant for the grant, and the City of West Lake Hills is the subapplicant.

    The HMGP is authorized by Section 404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Under the HMGP, federal funds pay 75 percent of the project cost, and the remaining 25 percent comes from nonfederal funding sources.

    The City of West Lake Hills is an incorporated municipality located immediately west of Austin, Texas in Travis County (Figure 1.1 and Figure 1.2). The project would be conducted within the City of West Lake Hills on 12.81 acres consisting of residential properties adjacent to the WBWP and a small portion of WBWP property (Figure 1.3 and Figure 1.4). Fuels reduction would be carried out on both private and public property, beginning at the residential properties, continuing down slope across private property and onto the WBWP to a maximum of 50 feet beyond the fenced WBWP boundary.

    This EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch. I Part 10.
